cannot read from /cvs/CVSROOT/Emptydir/##CVSDUMMY/##CVSDUMMY

after trying to call cvs update on a directory myDir, which is not the
current directory, I've got the error message

cvs -d :<mycvs-root>/cvs up -d ../../myDir
cvs server: User 'myuser' cannot read from

instead of updating that directory.
Remark: :<mycvs-root>/cvs, myuser myDir are ok; I only anonymized it here.
The command works, if I call cvs up without the 2nd -d option, when the
working directory is to be updated.

What was wrong or missing, what may be the reason for this error message?
How can the problem be resolved?
